1.1Purpose and scope of Communications Management Plan


[Provide the purpose of the communications management plan.]

The purpose of this document is to define the communications goals and strategies of the


. These high-level strategies and goals are intended to provide guidance in planning and measuring results of the current and future communications efforts.

The


Communications Management Plan (CMP) defines the project’s structure and methods of information collection, screening, formatting, and distribution of project information. It also outlines understanding among project teams regarding the actions and processes necessary to facilitate the critical links among people, ideas, and information that are necessary for project success.

The overall objective of a Communications Management Plan is to promote the success of a project by meeting the information needs of project stakeholders and outline the goals of the communications efforts to reach and inform each group.

Without detailed plans for communications activities that identify the organizational, policy, and material resources needed to carry them out, the
will not be able to secure needed resources, coordinate efforts with other groups, or report its activities and results to key oversight stakeholders.

Communications planning activities identify the appropriate level of communication for each project stakeholder, what information should be distributed and the frequency of communications. This plan should also include the vehicle of communications (email, face to face meetings, etc). The risk of insufficient planning could result in failure to accomplish key project objectives, duplication of effort, and reduced stakeholder confidence.




communications efforts should be based on this explicit, detailed Communications Management Plan, with a matrix of specific actions addressing communications needs of each stakeholder group. Success for
project communications should be measured against planned objectives and the IT Project Manager should provide regular updates to the Business Owner on each objective.

The intended audience of the


CMP is the project manager, project team, project sponsor, senior leaders, and any other stakeholders whose support is needed to carry out the project.

3.1Communications Matrix


The Communications Action Matrix is used to define details regarding the communications activities that are used during the course of the project. The matrix is developed and maintained by the Project Manager, or a member of the Integrated Project Team. The project team and the Business Owner work together to develop a “matrix” of communications activities around each project milestone. This matrix would include detailed activities such as:

  • Designate “owners” responsible for communications products and activities for each project milestone

  • The resources required for these efforts in terms of personnel and budget, and where the personnel and budget would be obtained

  • A list of key messages and benefits statements, with an assigned message “owner” as a central point of contact

  • Processes for vetting communications messages and products

  • List priority customer groups targeted for participation in
    , including:

    • The policy level contact to be approached at each organization. This person should be empowered to make decisions regarding participation in and ongoing commitment to
      .

    • The schedule for approaching each; and

    • The designated spokesperson from the
      tasked with developing the relationship with each targeted group.

  • List contacts from current (legacy) system users, indicating:

    • Whether they are the appropriate representatives to carry communications and change management messages into their environment; and

    • If the current contacts are not the appropriate person, such contacts should be identified and included in planning.

The following is a sample Communications Action Matrix. Additional rows should be added to the matrix as required by your project.
